Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest (GIVEAWAY!! Retail value: $33)

If you are planning a vacation or a staycation, remember to bring your camera because you might just take that photo that wins you a trip of a lifetime – a National Geographic Expedition for two to the Greek Isles. Did I mention you will also have your image appear in an Energizer Ultimate Lithium ad in National Geographic?
Entry is simple: Visit Energizer.com/lithium and click on Enter Now and follow the directions.
Contest will end on Wednesday, June 30th!

Aspiring photographers can visit nationalgeographic.com/lithium to enter one photo in each of six thematic categories: animals/wildlife, nature, travel, people/cultures, weather and action/energy. Whether you are a digital photography novice, a proud picture-taking mom or a long-time photo enthusiast, all skill levels are encouraged to enter!!
“You don’t have to be an expert or have professional equipment to capture a magnificent shot,” said 20-year National Geographic photographer and contest judge Jim Richardson. “One of last year’s Category Winning photos was shot by a zoo employee on a regular point-and-shoot camera. Great photography is often about being in the right place at the right time and making sure you’re prepared to capture the moment when it happens.”
After the entry period closes, Richardson will review all of the entries and select two finalists in each category. Then, from Aug. 17 through Sept. 15, Americans will be asked to go online and review each of the Category Finalists and vote for their favorite in each category. Once the Category Winners are determined, Richardson will help choose a Grand Prize Winner, to be announced on or about Nov. 4.
The Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest Web site also serves as a valuable resource for photo enthusiasts. Visitors can check out photos and tips from Richardson, enjoy a gallery of past winners as well as view a weekly gallery that will be updated with new submissions. Photo buffs can even participate in a Q&A with Richardson, asking about anything from his 20 years with National Geographic to questions on gear and equipment.
Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries are such an asset to your camera, because they outlast other brand batteries and they have an amazing storage life~ 15 years!!

Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries are the world’s longest-lasting AA and AAA batteries in high-tech devices. They last up to 8x longer* in digital cameras and up to 2x longer* in flash units than Energizer® MAX®, the company’s flagship alkaline brand. The batteries also last longer in portable GPS units, LED flashlights and handheld games.
Along with a storage life of 15 years, Energizer® Ultimate Lithium batteries are 33 percent lighter than ordinary alkaline batteries and perform well in extreme temperatures from -40 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit (-40 to 60 degrees Celsius), making them ideal for photographers who are on-the-go.
“Energizer sets a world standard for reliability and long-lasting power, so it made perfect sense for us to partner with the world’s premier publication honoring photojournalism,” said Jim Olsen, Vice President of Marketing for Energizer North America. “Both Energizer and National Geographic share the goal of celebrating the work of photographers from all skill levels. We can’t wait to see the incredible submissions the Energizer Ultimate Photo Contest receives this year.”


***ENTER TO WIN HERE TOO***
Energizer is sponsoring a giveaway for my readers! You can enter to win two 4-packs of AA and one 4-pack of AAA Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries ($33 value)!

To enter, tell me about a photo you took recently and it was super! This contest is open to bloggers and non-bloggers of the United States. This contest will end on June 2, 2010.
**For more extra chances you can: blog this contest, add my button to your site, subscribe to my blog, twitter and/or become a fan on facebook, and/or visit everyday and add another friendly comment about Energizer's products or National Geographic! Don't forget to put the extra comments for the "extra" work. Good luck!**
I was contacted by Energizer to post this information on the photo contest. They sent me free product in return for a review and promotion. I was also able to host a giveaway for my readers, sponsored from Energizer. I was not compensated for my time or written review.

I took a picture this weekend of our two cats huddled in a corner together. They usually will not sit close together, but for some reason they did. The are behind a white metal bars acquarium stand and it looks like they are in jail together. ;-)

This past weekend I was taking pictures of my 10 month old twin nieces. They are just learning how to stand and within the last week they realized that they can do it without holding on to anything. The look of excitement in their eyes in the pictures is too cute for words!

I took a picture of my son wearing my hat. It was the first one I have been able to take like this. He took my hat and put it on backwards. He looked so cute, I told him to hold on let me get a picture and he actually waited! Normally he says "No!" and takes the hat back off. It was great!

My favorite photo that I've taken is of our Buddha Garden. It looks so restful and peaceful. It was taken during the fall which is my favorite season. I love looking at the colorful leaves mixed in with the rocks and small trees.

Having expanded our family with three puppies - and wasting no time in photographing them on numerous occasions - I captured a picture of them all cuddled up together literally posing for the camera. The picture turned out fantastic, but it wasn't because I did anything special... the puppies were 'owning it!' :)

I recently took a picture of my kids at the playground. The photo I love the most is of my daughter on the swings with her hair done up playfully and looking to the side at a friend. I edited this photo to make a harsh black and white photo and I'm quite proud of how it turned out.
